Rodent and Rat Control Perth

At Bug Busters, our trained technicians offer a range of effective and safe solutions to manage your rodent pest problems. Rodents are highly destructive creatures, and because they are known carriers of disease, they can also pose a health risk to inhabitants of homes and businesses. Their excessive gnawing, which is done to prevent their incisors from growing too long, can lead to extensive damage to a home or building. This can include damaging electrical wiring and causing potential fires as a result.

Rats are scavengers and will seek out any available food lying around.

These are the main signs that indicate rodents are present in your home or business:

  • Evidence of droppings
  • Squeaking
  • Gnawing
  • Movement noises in walls, cupboards, ceilings and under floors


FAQ's & More information

Will rodent baiting harm my pets?

We generally bait in roof spaces and as such are out of reach for pets. If we’re baiting internally or externally, we always use plastic lockable rodent stations to ensure pets or children can’t access the baits. The lethal dose (LD50) of most rodenticide used in rodent control treatments is quite high, and most pets would need to consume at least 200g of pure bait per KG of body weight which would be highly unlikely. Pets will not die from eating a rodent that has died from eating bait.

Will you return to remove dead rodents after a treatment?

Generally, rodents will leave roof spaces in search of water after they’ve consumed bait and will die outside. On some occasions, rodents will die in a roof space or under a subfloor. Should you require rat removal, Bug Busters can attend and attempt to remove the carcass for $88, however, sometimes it’s not possible to reach them if they’re in the corner of a roof or fallen down a cavity.
